POSTED: July 9, 2019 -- 1:40 p.m. CT

The American Athletic Conference and Southeastern Conference (SEC) revealed the matchups for their men's basketball nonconference scheduling alliance set to begin in the 2019-20 season.

Four teams from each league will square off in nonconference play in home-and-home series starting this season. Times for each matchup will be determined by the schools.

Memphis takes on Georgia at FedExForum while Wichita State hosts Ole Miss at Koch Arena. Houston heads to South Carolina and SMU goes to Vanderbilt. Return matchups will take place in the 2020-21 season.
